Holiday Project: Christmas tablescapes

Viewing Christmas tablescapes really gets my creative juices flowing. I love to look at centerpieces and placesettings designed by decorators and bloggers who are filled with the holiday spirit.

San Francisco designer/stylist Scot Meacham Wood shares masterful holiday tabletops in his blog, Adventures of Tartan Scot. The great tablesetting above is by Tartan Scot holiday contest winner Vignette Design.

Red is always appropriate during the season. Image above shows how the show-stopping color is used beautifully at the table.

We could take our centerpiece decor cue from the photos below. Handsome branches from outdoors have been brought inside and secured in a pot. Glimmering ornaments, icicles and beaded strands have been added to create a dramatic tabletop. Gorgeous!

I love the use of tall, glass vases for all sorts of decorating schemes. Below, some vases are filled with sparkling pine cones, while others play host to coordinating candles. Here, too, branches are the focus of the holiday table.

Glass vases also show off seasonal berries and fruit, ornaments and sparkling gems to complement any tablesetting.

Don't you want to be seated at the table below for an intimate dinner party? I do. It  is so welcoming with the candle glow and casual table decor of holly berries and leaves.

Gathered in a cottage for Christmas seems such a perfect setting for a family dinner. Could it possibly be more cheerful than this?

I had fun making my easy centerpiece last year with left over baubles and beads. Now, it's time to put the finishing touches on this year's decor.
